DENTON – Texas Woman’s University Chancellor Dr. Ann Stuart was recently named a Woman of Distinction by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) of Texas at its annual convention.

Dr. Stuart was one of 100 female leaders from around the state honored for their extraordinary accomplishments in their professions and communities by the AAUW of Texas. Chancellor Stuart was nominated for this award by the AAUW Denton branch.

“I appreciate this honor and am grateful to the Denton branch for nominating me,” Chancellor Stuart said. “TWU is a leader in providing quality higher education to women, and I am proud of how TWU and the AAUW work together to encourage young girls to attend college. ”

Every other year, AAUW and TWU co-sponsor the Expanding Your Horizons in Science and Mathematics™ conference, which showcases math and science careers to more than 400 middle school girls in the DFW area.

With approximately 100,000 members, 1,000 branches, and 500 college/university institution partners nationwide, the AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education and research. For more information on the AAUW of Texas, visit www.aauwtexas.org.
